Rising above the South Valley park area and nestled along the western edge of the valley between where the mountains begin and the hog back ends you will find Deer Creek Park. Trails ranging from a gentle stroll to vigorous workout are to be had within the confines of this park. The trails in the more interior sections of the park give a feeling of seclusion with the expansive forests stretched out beyond holding secret the homes of the many animals that can be seen within the park, including but rarely seen bear and mountain lion. If you are hiking in the hotter months keep an eye out for rattlesnakes in the area as they do enjoy the sun as much as the other occupants of the area. There are many hiker only trails in this park so be sure to look for the signs to let you know where you are allowed to be if you are rolling along.
